About Jack London

Jack London (1876-1916) was born in San Francisco. Brought up in poverty, Jack left home at fifteen and travelled around North America as a tramp. In 1896 he was caught up in the gold rush to the Klondike River in north-west Canada. He returned home with no gold, but his experiences provided him with the inspiration for his many successful stories. The Call of the Wild was published in 1903, and was followed in 1906 by his popular wolf story, White Fang. Andrew Davidson trained as a designer at the Royal College of Art before becoming an illustrator. His distinctive engravings are cut on English boxwood blocks- those for The Iron Man by Ted Hughes won him the 1986 Emil/Kurt Maschler Award. He lives in Gloucestershire with his wife and two young sons.
